Goats are land-based neutral Mobs. If provoked, they will try to butt the player using their horns. Males have larger horns than the Female Goats, and while Females can be milked, Males cannot, and if the player tries to milk a Male Goat it will start charging at the player with its horns. You can get a Goat to follow you either by using a Lead or by holding any edible item in your hand.
Goats come in a range of colors and drop Leather when killed. There have been reports of goats actually changing colors, too!
Goats can be tamed by feeding them wheat or any other edible item. The Goat will then be able to be named. To change the Goat's name at a later date, it is possible to right-click on it when holding a Book or a Medallion. To heal a hurt Goat, it can be fed any edible item.
Tamed Goats can be fed Wheat to enter into Love Mode. Although they go into Love Mode, Goats cannot actually breed, despite baby goats being able to spawn naturally.
- Male Goats will fight between themselves, but always stop before one of them dies. This is characterised by the Goats lowering their heads, raising their tails and charging at each other.
- Goats are also omnivorous and will eat ANY items that are dropped near them, including diamonds, meaning that if a player dies next to a Goat, unfortunately, they will lose almost everything that was in their inventory. It is advised to keep goats away for the safety of items in the player's inventory.
